The new style in vast airport terminals

I hadn’t realized how much giant, open-span main terminals now dominate airport design. Some examples I’ve been in recently:

  1. They all pretty much look the same. I’ve started to use the bathroom facilities as a telling-apart point.

  2. Don’t forget the new Mexico City terminal.

    And I concur with Mary-Lynn. I haven’t been to SIN in a lot of years, but I remember being favorably impressed by their toilet facilities. Though I’d been backpacking through Indonesia, so my perspective was a bit off.

  3. Nice photographs of the new breed of airport design. 🙂

    If I may ask, what is your favorite–in terms of design–among all the airports you’ve ever been to?

    Cheers!
